Beautiful!

Also on the James Bond thread for purposes of completion, but here for January.

This one is for the rarity file and precious little else.

Made known to me via cabmanray many years ago, I have never seen one for sale and aside from the aforementioned chap, never known anyone else who owns one either.

In terrible condition; seam separation, water marks, edge creasing, paper loss and perhaps even fading, and on the most brittle and what must have been the cheapest paper made available to the military, since perhaps all other available funds were put towards tanks and K Rations, one Military From Russia with Love 1 sheet.

I currently know only of two other Bond films for which posters were 'designed' and issued to the military; Dr No and Thunderball, both of which are far more commonly known and available.

Anyway, am not sure this will elicit much in the way of discussion so perhaps this serves only to prove I am still alive and up for contributing where possible.

Bellisima!  Losing AK and Sue Lyon last year has really made the ticking of the ol' clock seem just that much louder.

Thank you guys!  I’m really digging those 1960s Italian posters lately, they’re so colorful and pulpy!

I really love them too, except for the quality of the paper.

Courtesy of emp, a recent addition to complete the lobby card set for The Saint in New York.

Bottom right and suffering from the odd pinhole, this completes another set of, for the nine films, 10 sets.  (Saint's Girl Friday had two sets, a less commonly known Red titled set for Canada as well as the Yellow titled one for the US)

Now needed, one card each from Double Trouble and London, and two from Palm Springs.

Speaking of Simes, thanks to his assistance, I just received my winning lot from Ewbanks' latest vintage poster auction: 2 Hammer quads combined in one single lot, my favorite being The Witches, a not-so-great flick released in the States as The Devil's Own.

I love that poster. Brings back many happy memories are visiting as many video shops in my local area as I could to find posters. Warners used to make these long posters for some or their releases. I think they also did a long poster for part 3 but never managed to get one. Congrats on this one!

Even though everything is on my website and it can be somewhat redundant, I'll try to post some stuff on here from time to time...

Just got these 2 quads.  Nothing out of this world, but I'm always happy to add to my Bardot collection.  Now 513 pieces :)
